"chicago tribune" has known. he's been building up the foreign bureaus. he's had the courage to put up a pay wall and say "you've got to pay for what journalists do online." i wanted to point out that... ande's had tremendous courage in the very bold investments he's made. i spent along time with h 20 years ago when he was just embarking on sky b and fox here in the u.s. i don't like fox,ut to break theriopoly of the networks was an exaordinarily business achievement. now, fox's contribution to the situatioin the u.s. today is very damaging, i thin but as a bhed media executive, he has been the visionary, along with turner, i would say, of the last 20 to 30 years. >> rose: certainly in a global way. >> yea
this morning, rebekah brooks, rupert murdoch's most senior newspaper executive in great britain has stepped down and resigned from her position. we'll see what happens next there. >>> meanwhile back in washington, president obama says it's decision time, telling congressional leaders yesterday he wants to see a deal on raising the debt ceiling in the next 24 to 36 hours. if not, he says lawmakers will have to return to the negotiating table this weekend. the president expected to hold a news conference on the negotiations at the white house in just a few hours. the president's deadline comes as the front page of the "wall street journal" reads "plan bemerges on debts," reporting harry reid is embracing mitch mcconnell's, quote, backup plan that would allow the president to raise the debt ceiling in three installments through the 2012 election. aides say the senate leaders hope to link a pack of spending cuts to mcconnell's plan, although it's unlikely it would include any tax increases. house republicans remain split on mcconnell's proposal, even though speaker john boehner is refusing to d
in a widening scandal over in britain. how far will this go? joining us, u.s. senator barbara boxer from california. do you think the fbi should investigate the newscorp and rupert murdoch? >> absolutely and senator jay rockefeller, chairman of the committee of which i am a senior member, he joined me and we asked for an investigation by the department of justice and the security and exchange commission. listen, chris, there are two laws that really may be implicated here, that may have been broken here. one is the foreign corrupt practices act that passed in the '70s. one is the so-called wiretap act. and american corporations can't break american laws, and rupert murdoch, according to reports, became an american citizen. his corporation is american, because he wanted to be able to own tv stations. well, the fact is, you have to abide by american law. >> let me ask you, do you believe in he bribed foreign officials? isn't that what we're talking about? his corporation? >> well, it's not a question of whether i believe it. the reports are coming out of britain that, in fact, police were
interesting, again, another development in this whole scandal that has, well, certainly rocked britain in the last couple of weeks and is now starting to rock the united states as well. the murdoch empire is coming up fire from all sides. >> aaron, thank you very much indeed. wf a message, a statement released by rebekah brooks, just give thaw. she says news international, we pride ourselves on setting the news agenda for the right reasons. today, we are leading the news for the wrong one. the reputation of the company we love so much, as well as the press freedoms we value so highly, are all at risk. as chief executive of the company, the statement continues, i feel a deep sense of responsibility to the people we have hurt, and i want to reiterate how sorry i am for what we now know to have taken place. i believe that the right and responsible action has been to lead us through the heat of the crisis. however, my desire to remain on the bridge has made me a focal point of the debate. this is now detracting attention from all our honest endeavors to fix the problems of the past. theref
or not the scandal engulfing rupert murdoch's media empire, particularly in britain so far, is likely to change that media empire here as well. mr. murdoch's company is not just a massive company, it is massively influential in u.s. politics, particularly in conservative u.s. politics, because his properties here include the "wall street journal," the most influential business newspaper in the country. and also "the new york post," the most influential tabloid newspaper in the country. and the fox news channel, which is a very successful full employment program for republican candidates. when the rupert murdoch scandal broke about bribery and illegal phone hacking as a regular way of doing business at his news properties, rupert murdoch had to drop his $12 billion bid to buy a satellite television channel in britain. had the deal gone through, he would have controlled 40% of all commercial television in britain. here it's 27 tv stations and the "wall street journal" and the fox news channel and "the new york post" and, and, and, and. i think the high noon light of day question to ask about all
